, colorado and ohio. yesterday, obama toured the aftermath of hurricane sandy in new jersey along with governor chris christie who had nothing but kind words for the president. >> has worked incredibly closely with me. i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state. >> the governor has said he has no intention of bringing romney to new jersey to survey the storm's damage. christie aides are denying any sort of rift with the romney campaign saying it is just about dealing with the storm and not about presidential politics. but one of the main political speculations here is that christie thinks romney has no chance of winning and he is setting himself up for a run in 2016. >>> romney has a good cause to be worried if the polls have anything to say about it. president obama is ahead six points in iowa. that's coming from the nbc news "wall street journal" morris poll. the president's also up by three in wisconsin and two in new hampshire. two
to likely voters. president obama 44%. governor romney, 51%. why after all this time does governor romney beat president obama when it comes to the question of who could best handle the economy? >> well, first of all, candy, there's a plethora of polls out there. >> a lot of them sort of show this, david. >> i actually prefer the cnn polls. i like the one you put out on friday where we were ahead in ohio and in states like ohio and elsewhere people know the reality, which is the president took tough steps to save our economy from freefall to save the auto industry, which governor romney would not have done, and he has a vision of how to move this economy forward. that will rebuild the middle class. that will -- and governor romney who runs around this country now saying i represent change doesn't represent change. he what he represents is a return to a failed task. >> still more feel think the governor would do better with the economy than the president. >> in that particular poll -- in that particular poll, candy, that may be the case, but in reality that's not the case. if you look at w
well, would say -- to say that michelle obama's not heaping praise on governor romney's time, his leadership in massachusetts, isn't that apples and oranges? those aren't the same thing. >> it actually is showing, though, the impact of all the praise that chris christie is heaping upon barack obama and him getting a political benefit from that. >> okay. >> more than just -- actually, probably the better comparison, tamron, is 9/11 after the 9/11 terrorist attacks where democrats and republicans rallied together around george w. bush who had been in the presidency just less than a year after winning a very hotly contested and contentious election. and the country coming together. and we're seeing that to a lesser extent right now play out on the east coast of new jersey and new york. >> thank you so much. i greatly appreciate -- go ahead, i'm sorry, keith, we're almost out of time, i'm sorry. >> i think it also shows the collapse of mitt romney's support mechanism in some ways. not that chris christie's abandoning him, but you also have bob mcdonnell of virginia who praised obama,
's trip. on the ground, president obama and governor christie visited relief shelters throughout the area. the governor offered this assessment of the president to storm victims. he means what he says. it's important that he is here. christie had more praise later on. >> we spent a significant afternoon together, surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together, to be able to show the president that personally, had an opportunity to see it and discuss it at length, and going over to the shelter here, being able to meet with folks and see the president and his concern, the concern all of us have for making sure that things get back to normal as quickly as possible. i discussed all those issues today with the president, and i'm pleased to report that he has sprung into action immediately, to help get us those things, while we were in the car riding together. so i want to thank him for that. he has worked incredibly closely with me, since before the storm hit. i think this is our sixth conversation since the weekend, and it's been a great working rela
a way to say yes. >> president obama and governor christie have been working closely throughout this crisis. governor christie yesterday found himself defending his praise over the last several days for president obama. >> the president of the united states and i have had six conversations since sunday. that shows to me a level of caring and concern and interest that i think leadership should be giving to this type of situation. this was a comfortable and relaxing interaction i've had with the president since i've known him. and i think it's because we're both doing what we want to do which is get things done. there will be some folks who criticize me for complimenting him. well, you know what? i speak the truth. that's what i always do. sometimes you like it, sometimes you don't. sometimes politicians like it, sometimes they don't. but i say what i feel and what i believe. and i'm just doing the same thing with the president of the united states. so i do pinch myself every day. you know, like when i got on marine one, i'm pinching myself, believe me. sandy and bill christie's s
parkway. yesterday president obama joined governor chris christie on the ground in atlantic city for an up close look at the destruction where the storm came ashore. they also saw the damage by air boarding the president's marine one helicopter for aerial views of the hardest hit community. the governor thanks the president for pledging quick federal relief in the region, something president obama insists will not be delayed. >> what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials and we will not quit until this is done. we are not going to tolerate red tape. we're not going to tolerate bureaucracy. and, you know, i instituted a 15-minute rule on my team. you return everybody's phone calls in 15 minutes, whether it's the mayor's, governor's, county officials, if they need something, we figure out a way to say yes. >> president obama and governor christie have been working closely throughout this crisis. governor christie yesterday found himself defending his praise over the last several days for president obama. >>
, president obama will tour new jersey. >> the october surprise, bipartisanship. >> governor chris christie -- >> i cannot thank the president enough. >> -- and president obama -- >> we will not quit until this is done. >> together surveying the damage. >> a big storm requires some big government. >> the federal government -- >> it seems like common sense. >> -- will not quit until this is done. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey? >> there is no role for a challenger. >> i have no idea, nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. >> what does a challenger do in a major disaster? >> governor romney, he's back on the trail. >> we come together at times like this. >> back on the trail in florida. >> we love all of our fellow citizens. >> the question that's dogged him -- >> romney's position on fema. >> -- was about fema. >> fema. >> fema. >> fema. >> take something from the federal government and send it back to the states. >> sending disaster management back to the states. >> that's the right direction pb. >> even the private sector. >> that's even bett
front property, a restaurant obliterated and what president obama and governor christie are seeing as they fly up and down the shoreline. we saw marine one go by in a convoy with helicopters about ten minutes ago and making their rounds. but i don't think a lot of people expect a lot from the federal government in the short term. >> yeah. >> right now people are just trying to deal with their immediate needs, moving in with neighbors, staying with friends. we have heard reports that some utility companies are talking about perhaps turning off water services, for example, because there could be contamination in the system. people are hunkering down and the work is just beginning. in this town, for example, the roads are covered with -- some places, several feet of sand. they're impassablimpassable. impossible to get in and out of some communities up and down the shoreline and in new jersey. again, to think of at this point of a lot of relief supplies arriving, people are hunkering down trying to deal with the near term right now. >> let me correct myself. it's congressman steve isra
, in springfield, ohio when president obama said this when talking about governor romney. listen. >> at the time the republican congress, senate candidate by the name of mitt romney -- no -- voting is the best revenge. >> reporter: voting is best revenge. his campaign was asked about that. they said what he was talking about is the best way to battle back against the illusion and delusion that mitt romney is putting out there but he did give romney a gift to put an ad. what is the president really talking about here? what does he want people to vote for? giving romney to contrast himself with the president. listen. >> yesterday the president said something you may have heard by now that i think surprised a lot of people, speaking to an audience, he said voting is the best revenge. he told his supporters, voting for revenge, vote for revenge? let me tell you what i would like to tell you. vote for love of country. >> we talk a lot about early voting here on the campaign trail and this election, it's particularly important in colorado where 50% of people have already cast their ballots. here is th
has fallen so far short. >> heather: that was president obama and governor romney speaking to crowds of supporters today. just three days before the election. they are all making their final push on the campaign trail as the clock ticks down. both candidates looking for the edge. some sort of edge that will help pull them ahead in a hotly contested race. editor for campaign and elections he joins us now. thank you for joining us. we mentioned this already. it comes down to the magic number of 270 electoral votes. what does each party have to do to reach that magic number at the finish line? >> i mean at this point, this is really about, both campaigns really getting their get out the vote operations into full swing in the last couple of days. this is what the campaigns have been planning for logistically figuring out where they need folks. we have heard a lot of spin from both campaigns where the ground organization the strongest. who has made the most voter contacts. who has made the most quality contacts. what both campaigns going to be battleground states to try to get some of the
the new jersey governor, a top romney surroga surrogate, heeds praise on president obama. >> the president called me. i appreciate that call from the president. it was very proactive and i appreciate that type of leadership. the president is great. i spoke to him three times yesterday pep called me for the last time at midnight last night. asked me what i needed. i said if you could expedite the major declaration without the fema mumbo jumbo. i got a call from fema at 2 a.m. the president has been all over this and he deserves great credit. i was on the phone with him yesterday three times personally. he gave me his number at the white house. told me to call him. and he absolutely means it. the president has been outstanding in this. so the folks at fema, craig fugate and his folks have been excellent. >> the president deserves great credit. he's been outstanding. a republican praising a democrat. but the powerful fact is this wasn't about politics. this was genuine thanks to a president focused on taking care of americans. president obama has canceled all campaign events through tomorrow
many times have you seen president obama, governor romney, or their surrogates in your state? guest: president obama has been here eight times this year, governor romney has been here 6. paul ryan may be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we have had a lot of its from michelle obama. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. host: bill clinton could be coming to your state. he is scheduled to campaign for the president today in colorado. he was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, we will see both candidates later in the week. governor romney was here last week and held a rally at red rock and thousands were turned away. the following day, he held a rally in denver and drew a crowd estimated at 16,000. the governor this week has reserved an amphitheater in the southern suburbs of has a capacity of 18,000 people. there were looking at going to boulder to hold a rally there. they're certainly trying to turn out a lot of voters with momentum. >> one we
otherwise political enemies together. in what would otherwise be an unlikely pairing, president obama and governor chris christie teamed up today putting politics aside and disaster first. >> we are here for you, and we will not forget. we will follow up to make sure that you get all the help that you need until you have rebuilt. >> chris christie, a strong supporter of mitt romney, has continued to stress this is no time for something. >> we would like to argue with each other about other stuff but first, we have to argue about this. >> it was decided a presidential appearance could actually hinder recovery efforts, so hours earlier, the president stopped at fema headquarters in d.c. for a briefing. while away from the damage, in florida, mitt romney also appeared with a heavy hitter -- jeb bush. >> imagine a leader like mitt romney that will restore confidence in this country. i imagine each and every day and that is why i'm campaigning as hard as i can for the guy. >> we come together in times like this, and we want to make sure they have a speedy and quick recovery. >> but the nic
"/nbc/marist. governor romney, 44%. in wisconsin, president obama at 49%. in new hampshire, president obama at 49%, governor romney at 47%. so the good news is that's a lead for president obama, from the democratic are perspective. the bad news is he's been dropping. in iowa, that lead was eight points, now it's six. in wisconsin, that lead is now three points, it was six. new hampshire, it was a seven-point lead, it's now two. so if you actually map it, it's shrinking very dramatically five days left until the election. are you worried about that trend? you must be. >> not at all. not at all. we had always anticipated that there would be a very, very close race. but i think, basically, what it's going to boil down to is who do we trust. and i think the polling will show that the american people trust this president. i think when you've got a situation where the president is either basically tired or leading in all of these battleground states, you've got, just the eyes will tell you that some of them are going to come out in his favor, if not all. but i think the president clearly, you've got to
believed that president obama had gone around the world apologizing. now in the last debate, governor romney reassured that he was not as likely to take people into war as they had thought in that debate. and i think that was a calculated strategy on his part. now, you could say, "and it was illegitimate. you secretly know that he was more likely." but nonetheless, what we can measure is whether they get what he said he was going to do in the context. and i think that president obama responded to the apologizing around the world claim in a i mber of ways that were effective as well. and i think one of the things that we can say about debas making a difference is that, had there been debat in the i ldwater/johnson election, had there been debates in the mcgovern/nixon election, i think we would not have had the blowout landslides that we had. what debates do is take the caricaturing of the challenger and give the challenger a chance to snd there and be who the re challenger would like to be in front of that audience. i think for governor romney the benefit was he knocked down some of
's a consequential difference. they know that president obama is going to increase taxes, where, where governor romney is not if he's elected president. that's an important issue distinction. coming into the last debate, the annenberg survey showed that the public thought that governor romney was more likely to take the country into a war, than was president obama. but the public also believed that president obama had gone around the world apologizing. now in the last debate, governor romney reassured that he was not as likely to take people into war as they had thought in that debate. and i think that was a calculated strategy on his part. now, you could say, "and it was illegitimate. you secretly know that he was more likely." but nonetheless, what we can measure is whether they get what he said he was going to do in the context. and i think that president obama responded to the apologizing around the world claim in a number of ways that were effective as well. and i think one of the things that we can say about debates making a difference is that, had there been debates in the goldwater/john
to survive. we've got it all covered live. three days and counting. president obama and governor romney make their final appearances in battleground states as we inch closer to election day. this morning, the results of our new polling in the states that just might decide this election. >>> and, welcome erica. say hello to the newest member of the "today" family, my new co-anchor erica hill. we can't wait for her to get started today, saturday november 3rd, 2012. >> from nbc news, this is a special edition of "today," decision 2012. with lester holt and erica hill. live from democracy plaza. >>> and a big good morning to everyone. welcome to "today" on a saturday morning. i'm lester holt here on democracy plaza, our home for nbc's election coverage, all the way through tuesday. but i am right now pleased to welcome my new co-host erica hill. great to have you here. before we get started, there is a bit of a tradition we like to do to welcome you folks. jeff, please. >> and erica hill. >> that has a nice ring to it. i'm not going to lie. >> when you heard the -- your heart beats. >> it's true
it on next tuesday during election day. >> chris: now, the campaign. with president obama and governor romney headed into the final week, we want to track where the race stands with senators from four key swing states. republican rob portman of ohio, who played president romney in the debate represent and 18 electoral votes are in play en a state obama won in '08, by 4.6 points and now leads 2.3 points in the latest real clear politics average of recent polls and republican ron johnson of wisconsin, 10 electoral votes at stake and obama won by almost 14 points, last time, and, is now leading by 2.3. and democrat mark warner of virginia, obama won its 13 electoral votes by 6 points, four years ago and now is tied with romney. and, democrat mark udall of colorado, obama won the 9 electoral votes last time by nine points and the race there is now dead even. senator portman, let's start with the state i guess most people think may decide the race, that is ohio. the obama camp says they have the big edge in early voting in your state and also note that they have 137 campaign offices around the cou

"saturday night live" had this take. >> before you get our vote, you're going to have to answer some questions. questions like -- >> when is the election? >> what are the names of the two people running? and be specific. >> who's the president right now? is he or she running? >> in real life, undecided voters sound like this. >> i want there to be continued job growth. >> don't say republican, don't say democrat, just get it done. >> i have not heard anything other than this tough guy rhetoric, and numbers that don't add up. >> it's critical right now, to make the best decision. >> a lot of people need relief, and i'm not too sure the election is going to give it, no matter who gets elected. >> i hop
on monday night. this afternoon, president obama and governor chris christie will visit that area to survey the damage. speaking of the president, well, we're just six days away from the election. mitt romney may be losing some momentum as president obama responds to sandy's destruction. and of course we're just two days away from october's critical unemployment number. varney & company starts right now. okay. so right now you're looking at the board here. these are the dow 30 stocks as neil cavuto called it the jeopardy board. and home depot as you might imagine at the top doing the best so far. insurance companies under a a little bit of pressure, not necessarily a lot, but the markets opened slightly to the upside. we are back in business here on fox business. the stock market is open. by the way, stuart is off today in previously scheduled assignment. but i have a great company for you today. elizabeth macdonald is back and former clinton advisor doug schoen is also here. nicole petallides back on the floor of the new york stock exchange. happy to see you down there nicole. we're going

. president obama and governor chris christie toured some of the hardest hit areas. >> our hearts go out to the families who have lost loved ones. it is true that because of some good preparation, the loss of life was kept lower than it might have been but for those individual families, obviously, their world has been torn apart. >> new york city was also hit hard. a police helicopter made more air rescues. the subway system is expected to reopen with limited service today. and jfk and newark airports are back hope with limited service. la guardia could follow suit sometime today. we'll all have a live update from new jersey in our next hour. >>> frederick county, maryland was one of the hardest hit areas by superstorm sandy in our area. sky fox flew over that area near the monocacy river yesterday. you can see flooded homes and roads from this vantage point. official tell us the water level at the river has receded and there is no major flooding. >>> the anne arundel county fire department is investigating the death of a contractor who was killed when a tree fell on him. it happened on

for tuning in. tonight's lead, it looks like obama/christie 2012. president obama in new jersey, governor chris christie today toured hard hit areas of hurricane sandy. their survey of the devastation reminded americans of how many people are suffering from the storm and how essential it is for government to help them. and then governor christie, the man mitt romney handpicked to give the keynote address at his convention began to praise president obama. >> obviously i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together and we saw an opportunity to discuss it at length. and then going over to the shelter here, being able to meet with folks, seeing the president and his concern. he has sprung into action immediately while we were in the car riding together. so i want to thank him for that. he has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. this is our sixth conversation since the weekend and it's been a great working relationship to make sure that we're doing the j
. >> as the ad itself says, major executives support governor romney and have point out people on the obama economic council are supporting mitt romney, because he does have a plan on day one to turn this country around in terms of jobs. and with the auto economy and everything else, you need to put people back to work. on day one, he is going to get the energy economy going and allowto allow us to have keystone pipeline opened up, and then he is going to increase economic opportunity for everybody, so that's why he's having so many people, even people on the president's own economics council are supporting mitt romney because he and paul ryan have a plan for day one to get jobs. >> but i was asking you about the jobs -- about the plan for jobs for the auto industry. and i do want to mention too that even chrysler's chief executive officer has debunked this ad. the jeeps will not be made in china. and certainly not at the expense of the american workers. chrysler is just expanding their reach. i want to clear that up. >> and that's -- the ad points that out that they are doing that. we want
, everyone. i'm randi kaye. glad you're with us. president obama and governor romney focus on the swing states as both candidates make their final push. in the aftermath of super storm sandy, gas rationing starts in new jersey today in an effort to cut down on those long lines at the gas station. plus, during this tragedy, a man has become a much-needed angel to one new jersey community. >>> just three days to go until election day and the presidential candidates are launching a weekend battleground blitz to win over undecided voters. today, president obama campaigns in ohio, wisconsin, iowa, and virginia. mitt romney stumps in new hampshire, iowa, and colorado. their running mates are also going nonstop. vice president joe biden in colorado today, and paul ryan in pennsylvania, virginia, florida, and ohio. ohio could be the biggest battleground of the election, and the race there is tight. a just released cnn-orc poll shows obama ahead by just three points, well within the margin of error. an nbc "wall street journal" marist poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. pres
. that completely blows up governor romney's closing argument for why he should replace president obama in the oval office. >> indeed. jared, it's not just this issue of bipartisanship, but mitt romney, as you know, has said, previously and repeatedly, particularly in the debates, that he would like to remove an organization like fema. >> right. >> now, not only is that highly inefficient, in terms of resourcing, but can i ask you, would it not also likely raise local taxes, because if each state is required to provide emergency assistance, then each state has to fund what the federal government is providing right this moment. >> precisely. instead of having a centralized disaster relief fund, which, of course, fema represents, each state would have to do so. by the way, they wouldn't do so. because state budgets don't work that way. everything is fungible. and in tough times like now, states can't run budget deficits. that fund would be dry, i guarantee you. and what's going to happen? the federal government's going to say, no, forget it? that's just not part of our budget? again, you know, mitt r
governor romney is going to win and everybody on president obama's side says he is going to win. how do you measure it tonigh >> i mean you know obviously, i guess an obama rally you would feel differently. at this rally it seems like he has enormous enthusiasm. this has the feeling of a winning campaign. the enthusiasm here tonight was tremendous. if this s a is swing state i feel good about it even if the polls about even and even if obama has a lead of one or two i suspect the undecided votes are going to go to mitt romney. i have a pretty good feeling about ohio. and if he wins ohio, i think he wins and maybe president obama could feel the same way about it. this is probably the key state. >> greta: why do you all leave, ohio, and spread out across the country? why don't you all just stay in ohio if that is so important, got to get every vote there. >> because you got to make sure you win the others too. you have to make sure you win, virginia, and win colorado and win wisconsin and you win florida. florida you can't take for granted. florida is just as critical. maybe more in ohio. we
